We are the happy and privileged caretakers of The Ranch which was our mother's home for more than 40 years. There were many celebrations and gatherings of friends and family. Any who entered as strangers, soon became close family friends.
We, Mae's daughters, welcome you to the Ranch to create your own memories.

A family home like no other. Take a moment to read reviews as we care for all guests like family.
We spent a week during Christmas at this location and we had the most amazing time. The view from the house was simply breathtaking and I spent a ton of time just basking in the sun in the picturesque environment. The home had extremely welcoming vibe. Anita had kept a New Year's gift for us, along with a bottle of wine, which we truly appreciated. There were tons of towels and every little detail was taken care of. We fell in love with the place and it was difficult for us to leave. We created some amazing memories at this place and wish to come back soon. It was very spacious and we had ample room for a group of 8 people. We spent a ton of time in the sun-room and the backyard facing down the valley.
The Ranch was the perfect spot for our two night stay and a gathering after the opening of my art show at the Fallbrook Art Center. Anita was very easy to communicate with and the house was in great shape for our arrival. The views are fantastic and the layout made it very flexible for our needs. The large screen TV was well used during the Soccer World Cup. The description and photos are accurate but it is even nicer than we had expected. I would definitely recommend the Ranch for a small group getaway. Thank you Anita, Ron
We stayed at the Ranch for a family reunion over the July 4th weekend. We had 6 adults and 4 kids (all less than 7) and we had ample space. I picked the Ranch over a hotel downtown because I liked the idea that we could all spend time together in a relaxed country environment. We spent 6 nights at the Ranch and it was awesome!! You could sense the pride the owners have in their property. Anita said it best - It is a home she rents and not a rental home!! The views from the ranch are beautiful and the sunroom is just gorgeous.. We visited the Zoo, the vineyards at Temecula, Legoland and the beaches at Oceanside and Coronado. Our drive to downtown was under an hour and Legoland and the Oceanside beach was much closer.
Anita was also very prompt in answering all my questions and providing information on the property.. If we were to visit the San Diego area again, Anita would be on the top of our list..
This past weekend we were guests at The Ranch for my brother's wedding at Los Willows. We chose to stay at The Ranch instead of a hotel as we wanted to give the kids some freedom and not have them stuck in a one room. It worked out perfectly! We had 3 families staying together and never felt crowded as the house has lots of living space. The kids loved exploring the grounds and the adults loved the views all around. We were about 10-15 minutes from all the activities for the weekend; golfing at Pala Mesa, rehearsal dinner at Bistro Brothers, the wedding at Los Willows and we even had some time to wonder downtown for a frozen yogurt. Anita was an absolute pleasure to talk to right from the start. She was very quick to respond to my many questions. She even left us some nice treats upon arrival. They were greatly appreciated after the long drive down. :) I highly recommend staying at The Ranch.
Our stay at The Ranch far exceeded my expectations. The setting is gorgeous and the house is very, very nice. Not so nice that you don't feel comfortable touching anything, but nice that you feel at ease - it was clean and comfortable. The Ranch feels lived in. I felt like I was coming home to my parents house for the holidays. You actually feel like you're in a home - not a rental. The kitchen is well-stocked which was greatly appreciated, since we celebrated Christmas Eve and Christmas morning there. The doggies LOVED the back yard. The beds were comfortable and the showers, faucets, appliances all worked just fine. We were welcomed with a very nice card and heartfelt sentiment along with a bottle of wine, some cheese and a goodie bag for the dogs! I was definitely impressed. You can feel the care and love from the owners. Working with them to rent the home and get the home details, keys, etc was easy and hassle-free.
I was sad to leave The Ranch. My only regret was not staying there longer. We will definitely be back sometime soon. Thanks for everything Anita. Happy 2014 to you and yours.
I have been so busy and finally getting around to writing a review. Several of my family members and I stayed here and we had plenty of room. Anita is so helpful, accommodating and incredibly nice. She even left an Easter basket for us full of goodies. She kept in contact with me throughout the entire transaction and made me feel very comfortable.
The house itself has so much room and is very clean. The neighborhood is quiet and the views are breathtaking. We will definitely stay here any time that we visit the San Diego area!
